frik and frak

they scurry about ~ ~ ~

running this way and that ~ ~ ~

up one limb ~ ~

down another ~ ~

jumping from one tree to the next...

they jostle,

they squib


suddenly pause for a wink,

then back at it again....   and again....   and again....



**We have a pair of these little guys (could be girls, or one of each)…..always together and always enjoying our trees and roof and deck….  I tried to get a photo of both but they are too, too quick.  We have named them Frik and Frak.  The one in the photo is Frak – I think… or could be Frik………

      Thank you – I am presently sitting in my study listening to the little guys scurry about on the roof above me!

      They are quite funny – except when they are tearing apart my herb garden. I can never be angry towards them for too long – they are just toooo cute.

    You have captured their movements through your words. I found your blog via John Howell.
